The adventurous nature makes it a challenging task to define the energy-packed jamband that touches on the roots of funk, blues, rock, and jazz. Their shows are built on a philosophy of playing from their hearts and an open mind, making for an exciting journey with a huge sound. The synergy with their audience is apparent from the start, and each time a song is played, it grows and develops as a better version of itself–much like the living being that is music.
Founded in 2014 and fronted by composer/vocalist/guitarist, Ji ‘Sharp’ Yehia, this funky four-piece has been moving ‘full-steam ahead’ with the release of two albums, two singles, and four years of major cross-country tours. Don Letourneau operates melodic layers of piano, organ and synth over a fierce rhythm section consisting of the bold beats of Matt Maxwell and driving bass grooves of Yo Izumita. Road Waves is a band to look out for on the tour-circuit and music festival scene.
